Can you guess what it is??

{no scrolly peeks}

You are peeking!!

I don't blame ya....you are probably dying to know what I got myself into now.....

TA-DA!!!!! Here she is!! What you are looking at is a 20 year dream FULFILLED!!!!
Boy does it feel good! I've been smilin for the last three days!
Ever since I started my biz wayyyyyy back in 87' I have wanted a utility trailer. At the time , I had a Chevy Cavalier and well ......not alot of pull with those to say the least!
As time went on, the money always needed to go someplace else. I'd save a little and then have to reluctently put it towards a more important issue. Can I get an AMEN?! You know how it goes.
Soooooo, when I was asked to participate in the Bella Rustica Urban Barn Show in Tennessee , I knew I needed to figure out a way to FINALLY get a trailer. I have all this primo junk that I HAVE to get down there cuz it definitely wouldn't all fit in the truck.
What to do....What to do????
Enter ETSY!
I figured if I could get my Etsy shop up and running, hopefully I could earn enough to pay for one.
Totally optimistic huh?
I just had to go for it......
and say prayers.....
and be up til wee hours in the morning entering inventory.....
and say more prayers......

Well , I have to say I am beyond grateful. I was able to realize my dream of owning my own trailer because of my Etsy shop...AND MY MOST FABULOUS CUSTOMERS! You are truly the best...each and every one.
As I type this post I can look out my window and this is what I see. I have to be honest....
It makes me proud. LOTS of hard work went into it and I think that's why I am so happy.
It is all worth it.
So just think about it........you've seen all the junk I can slap on the back of the truck~ Can you just imagine what I can do with this baby!!! I get goose bumps just thinking about it. I feel like I'm runnin with the big dogs now.
This brings up a great point. The next time you are considering making a purchase on Etsy from me or any other shop, you could be helping to fulfill a dream, to help someone grow, to assist in establishing a foundation for someone who took a chance.
Just like you did with me.
Thank U!

Wow... good for you! I've been working on opening an ETSY shop, but haven't listed anything as yet. Your story has inspired me to get a move on! Good luck with your show!

I have 2 of those babies and just love how easy it is to roll in big pcs, no more lifting them into the back to the pickup or squeezing them into the minivan! Looks like a 6x12, thats what mine is and its a little taller which is good cause I don't bump my head! Enjoy! Nancy

Great accomplishment sweetie. Want to know something cool? I live where your trailer was made. Even worked in one of the cargo trailer factories too. Hard work it is. Any who, great job and I know how hard it is to work for something we need.
